On Nov 6, in a clearing along the BeltLine just north of Piedmont Park, you'll find a 30 foot picnic table covered with a feast of meat, apples, corn, potatoes, and warm rolls all lit by glowing light. Revelers will join you as you sit down at the table to eat, you'll toast one another and take long swigs from deep jugs of wine. Dancers will appear as if from nowhere and eaters, amid the flailing limbs, will become performers themselves, flipping, throwing, swigging, munching, twirling, singing, toasting, cheering, flinging, eating and swirling.
Join Dash, Nov 6 for ANTI MANNERS a Dance/Feast featuring the lovely Helen Hale. 30 folks (maybe you?!) will sit at the main dinner table, sign up here if you want a spot! However, ALL are welcome. Everyone else will sit on picnic blankets watching the messy, whimsy-filled peformance, eating delicious fruits, drinking strong wine, enjoying the night air and welcoming fall time.
BeltLine just North of Piedmont Park behind Amsterdam Walk -- be brave, you'll find it.
Stay however long
Bring a blanket, a candle, a flask, and a bib.
LOVE DASH Facebook event.

To celebrate the Easter season, we’re taking a field trip to Paradise Gardens in Summerville, Georgia on April 30th. Paradise Gardens is the creation of the late folk artist and preacher Howard Finster. You may have seen his work at the High Museum or on the covers of albums by REM and Talking Heads. Using all kinds of recycled materials—such as bottles, mirrors, and toilets—Finster transformed his gardens into a work of sacred art.
We will gather at the church at 10:30 am on April 30th and caravan to Summerville (roughly 1.5 hours each way). Bring a packed lunch so we can eat on the grounds and a few dollars for gas (entry to the Gardens is free, though donations are welcomed). Sign-up sheets will be at the information table after church in the upcoming weeks. Please include your phone number and email address, and indicate if you are willing to drive.
